“Is it for a good grip, so when you do an overhand toss it doesn’t accidentaly slip out of your hand and land behind you?”
Anyone out there who was aboard the USS Ogden, off the coast of Vietnam, 1965-1966 might remember this incident.
The marines would throw grenades over the side at random intervals to discourage swimmers. A navy officer managed to talk a marine into letting him toss one, and of course he let it go on the back stroke. Luckily, the marine (while laughing himself silly) had the presence of mind to kick it overboard, and it went off about ten feet below the deck. The officer just stood there, trying to figure a way to order everyone present to forget what thet’de just seen.
That still ranks as one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.
Does that answer your question, Alphagene?
BTW; It was smooth.
